Art Fact Friday – Condo Show

Today’s Art Fact Friday is simple: art comes in all shapes, sizes, and dimensions! However judging a space where fine art might fit can be difficult but anyone can find the perfect fine art piece for their homes and the wall space that they have. This is why ZuCot has curated a special condo show alongside our Spectrum exhibit, offering fine art that is the perfect size for the smaller walls and spaces you might find in your home!

Make an appointment to view the fine art works today: info@zucotgallery.com Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Thursday 11-4pm and Saturday 1-4pm.

Art Fact Friday – Julio Mejia

Art Fact Friday: Julio Mejia has a new series of abstract fine art titled, “Memory Of Fire”. This series is about the time Mejia spent working at the United States Embassy in Peru, during his early 20’s, when Peru was experiencing terrorist activity which he witnessed. Mejia recently felt the need to express his feelings of that time with his art. Each of his new paintings are named with words that stood out to him in from the journal he kept. The gestural splashes of paint and explosion of color express to the viewer what Mejia might have felt.

ZuCot’s exhibition Spectrum will be showing Mejia’s series “Memory of Fire” – Opening night June 19th, 6pm -11pm.

Art Fact Friday – Original Printmaker Steve Prince

Today’s Art Fact Friday will be in preparation for our new exhibition – Spectrum! Spectrum will feature Julio Mejia and new artist to ZuCot gallery Steve Prince. Plus upstairs we will have a special area showcasing fine art made for apartments, condominium, and loft living. Save – The – Date for June 19th, 6-11pm.

Steve Prince is a talented artist with many skills but mainly works by producing original relief prints with woodcuts. Woodcuts are made by cutting into the broad face of a plank of wood, usually with a knife (the linocut is made the same way, except that linoleum is substituted for wood). The artist will cut away areas not meant to print. The cut away areas appear in the finished print as the white (negative space) of the design while the ink (colored areas) adheres to the raised wood block creating the original artwork. When using this medium due to the organic nature the artist is limited in the prints they can produce and each print will end up slightly different than the one pressed before it becoming its own original fine artwork!
